Can a course introduce, reinforce, and emphasize an Outcome?
Possibly. The answer to this question depends on exactly how a discipline is defining these designations. For example, the discipline may feel that students come with little or no knowledge about their subject and are being introduced to it (“I”). At the same time, the discipline might feel that the Outcome is reinforced throughout the course (“R”) and is the central focus of the competencies (“E”). Generally, though, a course receives only one of these designations.
